These are a few of my faaaaavorite things........
I don't have the spontaneous time available to me these days to spend a Saturday morning perusing the local estate/garage sales as often as I would like, but when I do get a chance, I get inordinately excited when I find a sale that's loaded with vintage sewing goodies....finding a stash of unusual buttons can make me positively giddy with delight!
The other day I found this Orco Tack-It marker:
Another marker that's dear to me for many reasons is this little plastic pin chalk goodie:
Another oldie, with history, is my Mother's Wiss Pinkers:
This one is not vintage, but a reproduction - my Sewing Bird, aka third hand:
Last, but definitely not least, my favorite Foot of the moment - the narrow hemmer:
|Rolled hem on fray-prone silk? Easy peasy! :) |
That's Collette, my trusty Featherweight, happily hemming away :)
What are your oft-used & favorite vintage notions/accessories? Any odd ones to share? Or great finds & good stories?
